Our Lenten Blog will start on February 26th this year. We are hoping to provide a daily time for you to be inspired and provide you some hope to share in the world. This is our 4th year of collective prayer during Lent and we are excited to share our theme.
Our theme this year is based on a quote from Saint Thérèse of Lisieux, also known as “Little Flower.”
She says, “May today there be peace within. May you trust that you are exactly where you are meant to be. May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith in yourself and others. May you use the gifts that you have received and pass on the love that has been given to you. May you be content with yourself just the way you are. Let this knowledge settle into your bones, and allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance, praise and love. It is there for each and every one of us.”
The quote sometimes gets attributed to others, but the quote is a collection of the Saint’s journal writings…
Do you like to write? We are looking for contributors this year to our blog. Will the spirit move you to write a post for our Lenten Blog? Each blog post is 400 words or less and can be a poem, prayer, story, song….
Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for all of the information on how to write a post.
Lent is coming, are you ready?
Blessings to all!

One response to “Previewing our Lenten Blog 2020…”
Hi dear Marcie: I send wishes that your day today is an excellent one!
I apologize for such an overly delayed response to your invitation to offer a post for this year’s Lenten Blog. I understand if by now your 40 devotions have already been filled.
If by chance there might still be a page open, I am sending the following poem I wrote earlier this year, along with a photo I took today:
More and More
I want to know You more and more Your thoughts, desires, all Your ways The tone and timbre of Your voice The curves and angles of Your face
The fragrance of Your drawing near The paths You forge that I align Your laughter’s tingle in my ear The texture of Your hand in mine
Your mighty power, Your sovereignty Your grand design and each day’s plans The undertones of what You say Unspoken wishes, Your commands
Each name You’ve giv’n to know You by Your perfect love that drives out dark The mysteries within Your eyes The sound made by the break of Your heart
The words to every song You sing When Your voice catches, Your sweet kiss The beams You laid Your life down on Your holy fire of righteousness
Your sufferings’ depths, Your agonies Your pangs when You don’t make a sound The things that bring You to Your knees Your sweat that falls like blood to ground
I long to know You more and more Eternally I will still behold New beauties, glories, excellencies O Love of mine! My Life, my Gold
Thank you again for all you do to help women of all stages, ages, walks of life are given an opportunity for pause, consideration, reflection, receiving from the bounty of Christ’s inestimable love and grace.
All the very best, Karen DiProspero
